With there just being seven days until Phoronix turns seven years old, it's time for an annual review. Aside from the ongoing what would you like to see next, your feedback is welcome regarding other improvements you would like to see made.

Using the comments and discussion link below, please provide your feedback about what improvements or features you would like to see added in the near future. Or any other related comments are also appreciated.

However, this is not a call for test requests (any requests for new Linux hardware tests / benchmarks should be done separately in the forums and hope that I see the thread or the way with the best turnaround is usually by tweeting @MichaelLarabel the request/comment).

This is also not a direct request for new features or anything related to the Phoronix Test Suite stack, but this is just a request for comments on the media side (I always welcome Phoronix Test Suite comments via the forums, mailing list, or by contacting me).

Also worth pointing out is that a new Phoronix.com web-site re-design may come in a few months, so feedback in that area is also fair game.

Additionally, requests that require greater recurring time commitments on my end are also unlikely to go through unless they can be very much justified. Sans the annual Oktoberfest pilgrimage when meeting with Phoronix readers and other selection occasions, my time is already maxed out (i.e. this news item is being typed at 6.00 on a Sunday morning of a holiday weekend). In the forums you will already find many comments from me in regards to upstream bug reporting and other manual, time-intensive tasks.

Greater weight is also assessed to the feedback of those that are Phoronix Premium subscribers, do not use AdBlock, are frequent forum contributors, and follow @Phoronix / @MichaelLarabel.

Thanks for any and all feedback. To celebrate the Phoronix birthday, you can also participate in our giveaway contest.
